Milestones: Bodleian Libraries-Vatican Library Digitization Project Reaches 1 Million Pages Digitized
From a Recent Post on the Polonsky Foundation Digitization Project Web Site:
The project has reached a significant milestone: 1 million pages have been digitized. To celebrate this achievement, we have chosen two particularly interesting incunabula to go online today [Feb. 24, 2015]. The volumes we have chosen represent key moments in printing history: the Bodleian’s Auct. L 3.33, printed by Sweynheym and Pannartz, was the first edition to include words printed entirely in Greek, while the Vatican Library’s Stamp.Barb.BBB.II.41, De honesta voluptate et valetudine, was a best-selling cookbook that would define a genre for centuries to come.
